2012 in pictures

2012 was a really fun year for me. I did a lot of traveling to new, and familiar places, stepped out of my vintage comfort zone and did some 19th century re-enacting, and met lots of interesting new people. I also quit my job at the end of 2011, went on weekly hiking trips in the summer, and cut the size of my wardrobe in half. 

Cheers to 2013!
New Year off to a smashing start.
Met some vintage ladies in the area and made new friends.
Met on of my favorite vintage bloggers in person
Modeled some pretty clothes
Adopted our second kitty, Coco.
Ruth and I fulfilled our childhood dream of exploring the old Army Hospital.
Hosted a Titanic Tea.
We participated in Reichenbach Day
Ruth and I traveled with my Grandma and great Aunt to Oklahoma...
Photobucket ...New Mexico...
...and Arizona.
Moved into my Grandmas house.
Stepped back in time.
Saw some amazing things and met amazing people at The Air and Space Museum
Hot summer days were spent at the coast.
Hosted a 1938 Picnic.
Stepped back in time even farther than usual.
Road trip to California

{See you next year}

What a sweet wrap-up of the year, with some lovely pictures. It's encouraged me to think about doing something similar - I find I always surprise myself when I take the time to recap at the end of a year. I often think "oh, it was just an uneventful year" but then everything I did starts springing back to mind. I'm impressed that you managed to keep yours so short and sweet - it must have been a challenge!

What a memorable, amazing year. I have to say, 2012 rocked (for the most part) for us, and I sense that it did for you guys as well.

Here's to the hope that 2013 is filled with endless happiness, awesome memories, and stellar vintage finds for you, dear Solanah!
